College Principal Dr. Khushvinder Kumar said here today that college is committed for providing best content material according to latest syllabus as well as psychological support to its students to counter the stress and problems related with Lockdown because of corona virus pandemic. He told that our college is running online classes since 13-14 March, 2020 after we organized an orientation and skill workshop for faculty members to equip them with methods and techniques of online and virtual learning.
Dr. Sanjay Kumar, Department of Chemistry and Prof. Vinay Garg, Department of Computer Sciences demonstrated in this workshop about how to use different apps, software and online portals.
Later faculty members informed and enrolled the students through e-mails, WhatsApp Groups and Google Classrooms and motivated them for regular attendance in the online classes. Students were provided not only reading and learning material but also evaluation through online tests and assignments.
Dr. Ajit Kumar, college registrar told that 74% of our students are already attending these classes regularly. He also informed that some students are not able to benefit from these due to lack of smart phones, internet or laptops but we are trying hard to find out some feasible solution of this problem. Through these classes 142 live lectures, 368 Google Classroom sessions, 400 power point presentations, 168 audio tutorials, 913 recorded video lectures and 2200 PDF/JPEG text material is being made available to the students. College Principal Dr. Khushvinder Kumar ensured that the syllabus will be covered till end of this month and if required we may conduct mid-semester examination online too. He appreciated the efforts of college academic council for their consistent guidance and persuasion and efficiency of faculty members in running on-line classes.
